This just in (it has been officially confirmed by the Sziget festival website), and the website of the Hegyalja has confirmed it way before Sziget did: Rudimental will occupy the last free spot on Main Stage in the Sziget 2015 lineup. The official Sziget timetable was updated with a bit of delay – the Kingdom of Hegyalja has today confirmed not just the date and the spot, but also the fact that all tickets for Kingdom of Hegyalja valid for their concert can be exchanged into one-day tickets for the last day of Sziget 2015.
The Kingdom was cancelled due to issues related to the festival site:
Due to unexpected problems relating to land-lease the festival between July 15th – 19th will not go ahead at Tokaj-Rakamaz. We have not got the festival site at our hands in the format we previously agreed on with the local municipality, thus we made the hurtful decision not to go ahead with our event. We are working tirelessly on rearranging shows at selected venues, and will provide information in due course.
Most of the concerts planned for the festival were re-scheduled for alternative locations this month.
Rudimental is an English drum and bass band consisting of Piers Agget, Amir Amor, Kesi Dryden and DJ Locksmith (Leon Rolle), who have all known each other since their early childhood, growing up on the same street and attending the same school. Since its formation the band has released two albums, Home in 2013 and We the Generation in 2015. This year the band has headlined Glastonbury’s “Other stage”, and after Sziget they will perform at Pukkelpop.
This leaves the festival with a single spot to announce: the A38 spot on Thursday at 22:00.
